With choices spanning sizes, layouts, locations and views, you can have your pick based on your style and who you’re with.

Everything about Royal Caribbean’s signature Ultimate Family Suite has been taken to the next level, with more room to stay and play. Kids and adults alike will love this imaginative new home away from home that’s debuting on Icon, thanks to made-for-family features and amenities like an in-suite slide; table tennis; areas to watch movies, sing karaoke and play video games; a second private wraparound balcony with a whirlpool and much more.

Family Infinite Balcony

Do you want to spend quality time as a family and also find some “me time?” The beauty of a first-of-its-kind vacation like Icon is you can do just that every day across eight neighborhoods and even in a room like the Family Infinite Balcony, which is where families of up to six can truly have it all. This room’s spacious design includes a separate alcove for kids that’s decked out with TVs and bunk beds, as well as a split bathroom, with a shower and a sink on one side and a toilet and sink on the other, so that more people can get ready at once. And what’s more, an Infinite Balcony means even more space and flexibility as the push of a button will transform your outdoor oasis into extra living space.

Spacious Infinite Balcony Rooms

Infinite Balconies are new to Royal Caribbean, and their claim to fame is their flexibility. You can maximize your space with a single push of a button, which will transform part of your interior living area into a breezy outdoor balcony. And if you’d rather cool off with the air from your AC, you can simply push the button again to close up the balcony and enjoy that extra room indoors. Another perk? You have more than one view to choose from. Pick from ocean views or Central Park views, where you’ll be able to overlook the open-air neighborhood filled with thousands of real plants, walking paths, restaurants and more.

Surfside Family View Interiors, Balconies and Suites

Nestled in the one-of-a-kind Surfside, the first neighborhood designed for young families, are the exciting Surfside Family View interiors, balconies and suites. The whole family will love having their own neighborhood to explore, with thrills like Splashaway Bay and Baby Bay aqua parks for the little ones and Water’s Edge for adults and older kids. The rooms, which are perfect for a family of up to four, will have children of any age and their parents feeling as comfortable as can be. The rooms and suites even have a separate space that transforms from a living room into a kids’ nook that’ll make nighttime play feel extra special. They also come with a split bathroom!

Fun fact: Surfside is where young families can stay and play all day. Everything is at your fingertips, from a beach-themed carousel to a fun-filled arcade. Guests of all ages will enjoy the many eateries—like The Lemon Post bar with menus for adults and kids—and activities like lively family festivals.

Panoramic Ocean View Rooms and Suites 

Perched high up on Icon is the new AquaDome, a transformational neighborhood where you can catch both 220-degree ocean views and deck-defying shows at the next-level AquaTheater. Thanks to the hundreds of glass panels that make up the neighborhood, there are new rooms and suites you can call your home away from home that have equally jaw-dropping views.

Fun fact: Icon’s AquaDome offers plenty of nightlife activities, from trying out coffee-infused cocktails at Rye & Bean to watching aerial performers fly around the enormous, shapeshifting waterfall


Sunset Suites—which are available in several layouts—make the sunset the star of every day on board.

The Sunset Suites

What says “vacation” more than enjoying a sunset over the ocean with a cocktail in hand? The new lineup of Sunset Suites on Icon makes, you guessed it, watching the sun go down from a prime spot an everyday thing. After a day of adventures, enjoy your front-row seat to nature’s most incredible show from the comfort of your bed, which faces the ocean or balcony—Sunset Corner Suites even have a wraparound balcony.
